|Sunrise on Druid Hills Golf course, Fairfield Glade, TN (12-20-15)|
We are only allowed to walk on the golf course when the golfers are NOT there. SO--during the Summer --we would walk the back nine holes of the golf course late in the evenings JUST before dark. BUT--after the time changed in the Fall and the days got shorter, we had to adjust our schedule. We now set the clock and get up about 6 a.m. and take our walks EARLY in the mornings.
I have NEVER been a 'morning person' ---but once I'm UP, I am always glad that we took our walk early. In December, we had very mild and wet weather---so walking on the golf course was very different from our weather so far in January...
Last August, I published one blog post showing pictures from our 'night' walks on the golf course. Click HERE to re-visit that post, and to see a diagram of these walks.... SO--today I'll share some pictures from our morning walks in December and January... Hope you enjoy them!
|One of our FEW colder mornings in December (12-20-15); I was enjoying watching the sun come up!!!!!|
